So I decided to make a new rim for my banjo. This one is a LOT thinner at about 5/16th of on inch. It is also more consistent in wall thickness and more round than the first (still not perfect though, and that's ok). I have also started working on the neck and the neck to rim connection. I put a picture on here, but I am going to try and get the fit a little better (any suggestions, I am currently using a piece of sandpaper wrapped over the rim). I think my next step will be to cut the back of the neck down close to size, cut the headstock, and then the ogee on the neck. I was planning on installing the perch pole and fitting it to the rim before I did the rounding on the neck. What do you all think?
